Women in Leadership Profile: Frances Whalen


Women in Leadership Profile: Frances Whalen By Deb Moller Every emergency manager knows that FEMA expects a “whole community” approach to preparedness. This guiding principle is sometimes seen as less critical than other doctrine. But it’s impossible to develop strong situational awareness, the foundation for effective planning and response, without engaging broad representation across a jurisdiction. Most emergency managers struggle to operationalize this principle. They don’t have time for a lot of community events. They don’t have funding to make it possible. It’s a huge task. It’s hard to know where to start. A colleague of Frances Whalen’s, familiar with [...]

This was a very unexpected change that happened really close to the beginning of the term. Faculty had to be reassigned to new classes, students had to be assigned to new advisors, new students had to be oriented, and there were meetings. So many meetings! But it’s been really great to start getting to know the faculty, staff, and administration on a different level, and to make contact with all the students I hadn’t yet [...]

Women in Leadership Profile: Tanya Knight


Women in Leadership Profile: Tanya Knight By Deb Moller Most people, counting down the five or ten years until retirement age, would never consider tackling a doctoral program. Tanya Knight isn’t like most people. As Tanya says, “As long as I’m healthy, why not keep going? After all, I might live forty more years!” She doesn’t expect her learning, her growth, or her contributions to be limited just because her driver’s license shows a certain age. Tanya joked that she’s never paid much attention to her age. A story her family still laughs at happened decades ago, when one [...]
